The trouble between farmers and rabbits goes way back, probably to the first garden that ever was. So, when a new family moves into Prune Street Farm after two years of the place sitting empty, Alice and her fellow cottontails aren’t sure what to make of it. The new owners are from the city, and have two kids and a DOG in tow (rabbits and dogs don't get along). The Harvey family means well, and soon Alice and her crew understand they will be safe on the farm.

Until she overhears a plan by a developer to run the Harveys off the land and bulldoze the farm. Alice, who has never considered herself a hero among rabbits, comes up with a plan to save their home, helped by other animals and the farmer's son.Author’s note.

Farmers and rabbits have a great literary history as enemies, but what might they accomplish if they worked together? Wood offers a fanciful twist on Peter Rabbit, toggling between the rabbit world and the human world, tracking a pair of adventurous kits and a young family that has moved from Brooklyn to try their hands at farming. The pace is a bit slow and some of the jokes (about hipsters, primarily) may be better suited to an adult audience. That said, the focus on the natural world, quirky characters, and whimsical adventures make this a good read-aloud candidate for fans of Charlotte’s Web or other gentle farm stories. Not a first purchase, but a sweet option for those looking for a slower-paced animal story.
